This ancient Sumerian sculpture (The Burney Relief, c2,000 - c1,950 BCE) is often labelled as the Goddess Inanna, both online and in some books. However, from the symbols (her wings, taloned bird feet, and the screech owls) it is obviously Lilith. Those are Lilith’s attributes, NOT Inanna’s.
Actually, according to the stories written down by the Sumerians themselves, Lilith tried to usurp Inanna’s home and throne.They are rivals, even enemies. They are most definitely NOT interchangeable.
Here endeth the lesson.
